An emerging threat in the cybersecurity wars is the
monetization of data, or the functionality of your system.
Hackers are growing bolder every year, and are arming
themselves with either denial of service or ransomware.
All a hacker needs is a single point of access. To
borrow from a British, and later American, TV show:
building automation systems are often the “weakest
link” in a company’s IT infrastructure. Compounding
the often lax security provisions, BAS by its very nature
is a web of components, sensors, systems, integrators,
vendors, facility managers, and other building occupants which can, often inadvertently, provide a single
point of entry for exploitation.
Enter the insurance industry. Consider purchasing a
cyber-damage policy, and be aware that with mounting
losses the insurance industry is playing a leading role
in establishing and promoting best practices among
their policy holders. Fortunately, protections against
intrusion are not generally expensive fixes, and the BAS
industry is aggressively developing improved quality
and security features.
With the good comes a little bad
BAS, while not exactly a brave new world, is a continually expanding frontier — a bit like space exploration.
The challenges facing facilities professionals today
will continue to evolve, driven by both internal needs
and external forces. Designing for the future, insisting
on flexibility, and staying vigilant will go a long way
